Omnivore to release the complete Art Pepper Artist House recordings

47 posts in this topic

Cool!  Not sure how much of this material I have... maybe just one CD.  I do have the complete Galaxy box and didn't realize that there was any overlap there with Artist House material.

If I'm reading the discography correctly, looks like all of it would be on the Complete Galaxy box (assuming that contains GXY-5148 and GXY-5154).  I own that box, so don't need this.  I want to put in a good word here for Omnivore Records, who have done exemplary work in their rock reissues of The Dream Syndicate, Game Theory, and others.

Still we are talking 55 tracks here and I`m not positive this is all covered by the "Complete Galaxy Box" (unfortunatelyl don`t have it near me to check) .....

I just checked, and it is all on the Complete Galaxy Box, discs 2-4.  This new release may (or may not) have better mastering, as that box is 30 years old.

I never bought the Galaxy box (18 or so CDs I recall, a little too many for me) so I'd be up for this.

The Galaxy box was really inexpensive back in the day. I have it.

I got it from a store in Ann Arbor on a business trip in 1993, right after I got married.  It had been traded in, they didn't know what to do with it, sold it to me for like $125.  I jumped at the opportunity, even though I couldn't really afford it, having just bought a house and paid for a wedding.  Just felt I also couldn't afford to pass on it.  Have never regretted it.

My copy of the Galaxy box cost me 16 euros, no box or booklet. Such a tightwad.

As good as the deal of the "Complete Galaxy Box" was back then, this is great music - IMO some of Art Pepper`s best late(r) career playing - and comes highly recommended ....

That’s amazing. The person who sold it to you must have taken a huge loss.

At a minimum, anyone who enjoys Pepper's music should track down the Artist House LP So in Love

IMO, this is the cream-of-the-cream from that set.  Astonishingly good.

Ha ha. No. A European supplier was selling off quite a few of these sets at a Euro per disc. Some people did get booklets and boxes but I was at the tail end. It was the period where manufacturers generally were dumping CDs as their stock models were ceasing to work. 

 

The SQ of the Pepper is of its time, shall we say, so maybe the new issue will make the most of the Artists House tapes. That label was audiophile in intent, and in fact the Pepper Galaxies are also very nicely recorded. 

 

Not sure that you guys are interpreting the contents correctly though. I think a lot is not in the Galaxy box.

I think they were called XYZ. Mine came with a rather flimsy box. As I recall someone here printed copies of the personnel & contents. $15 American seems about right.

27 tracks from the 49 in the new set are in the Galaxy. Or maybe 50. The track lists at Goldmine and at Omnivore differ.
